The Jitterbug Flip Cell Phone 

 

What makes the Jitterbug Flip cell phone different from other cell phones?

 

The Jitterbug® Flip cell phone was designed with seniors and others with little or no prior cell phone experience in mind. First, it is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The lower part of the display screen is what we call the "Command Area." This is where it asks what you want to do. Let’s say you are in your phone list and your first contact is highlighted. In the Command Area you will see the question, "Call?" You simply press the YES or NO key. Plus, there’s a built-in tutorial, in case you need more help. The Jitterbug phone also offers a standard keypad with large, backlit buttons that are easier to see.

 

Do Jitterbug Flip cell phones have features for people who are visually impaired?

 

Yes. The Jitterbug Flip has a sharp color screen with menus, messages, and YES/NO questions displayed in larger-than-average lettering. In addition, clear, backlit keys with big numbers make it easy to use the phone in all lighting conditions.

 

What features does the Jitterbug Flip have for people who have difficulty hearing?

 

The volume adjusts from low to super-high, and there’s a Speakerphone option that’s incredibly simple to activate with a press of the button clearly labeled Spkr. The volume can also be adjusted while you are on the call. The Jitterbug Flip also is hearing aid compatible, with a M4/T4 rating.

 

Does the Jitterbug Flip offer any hands-free features?

 

Yes. Jitterbug Flip phones also come with a Voice Dial feature. This feature makes it possible for you to dial your phone simply by saying the name of the contact that you would like to reach. Any contacts that you would like to use the Voice Dial feature with need to be programmed into your phone prior to using the feature. Operators based in the US are ready to help you program contacts into your phone if you are not familiar with this process. In addition, the Jitterbug Flip features a built-in Speakerphone. By simply pressing the Spkr button, you’ll be able to carry on your entire conversation without even needing to hold the phone!
